Erik ten Hag is starting to lose the Manchester United dressing room after an underwhelming start to the 23/24 campaign.
After a promising first season in charge that resulted in winning the Carabao Cup and securing Champions League qualification, it was widely expected that United will be challenging right at the top in the new season.

During the summer window, United bolstered their squad after bringing in players like Mason Mount, Andre Onana and Rasmus Hojlund.
But, they have endured another disappointing start to the Premier League campaign. Just last weekend, they were well beaten by Brighton and Hove Albion at Old Trafford.
As a result, The Red Devils have only picked up six points from a possible 15.
According to Football Insider, members of the United squad are growing increasingly disenchanted by the manager’s methods.
The report claimed that fingers are being pointed towards the club’s hierarchy after a couple of off-the-pitch incidents including the handling of Mason Greenwood and Antony.
Ten Hag is reportedly beginning to lose the dressing room. Also, it was reported that former captain Harry Maguire stormed out of Old Trafford minutes after full-time against Brighton.
Things are not going to get easier for Ten Hag as he prepares his team to face Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the Champions League on Wednesday.
Speaking ahead of the huge clash, Ten Hag admitted that he has never been able to pick his best team since taking over at United.
He said: “One thing is true, from the start of last season I don’t think I ever started with, in my opinion, the best starting XI. There was always injuries.
“We always got results apart from the period we are in now. I have experienced it in the past and managed it. You have to deal with it. I like these situations because you have to handle it and know what to do, and that is focusing on the process.”
